Nina Ricci currently has no design creative director. Olivier left along with PR director, Kate Etter, and and the only person whose name has come up in terms of replacing his position is British designer, Peter Copping. Today Mario Grauso verified that he has not invited anyone for the Met and that Ricci is going to announce a new designer within the next few weeks. I am 99.99999999% sure that it will be Peter Copping.
In terms of Olivier and his amazing shoes that he designed for Fall 2009, they ARE NOT GOING INTO PRODUCTION!!!!!!!!! That is simply because Olivier is a genius and no one can handle it.
